Seems a little heat and the shop press will be required here. Wonder just how something that heavy gets bent. Perhaps the grader blade or snow plow. We used both extensively in the 1970's. I can't see the weight of the sickle bar bending this.

Probably from using the snow plow as a battering ram, the arm is at the end of the linkage
